Biography

I am an Assistant Professor at Rochester Institute of Technology, Department of Software Engineering. My research interests focused on software architecture and requirements engineering and their influence on various software development concerns. Particularly I worked on software development issues in mission and safety critical domains, performance-centric and dependable software. I worked for seven years as a software architect and designer on large, data-intensive, meteorological and health care systems. I was fortunate enough to work with Jane Cleland-Huang during my doctoral studies at DePaul University.
